bringing things to the brink with things like the debt ceiling, which i've been very vocal about republicans should not try to have that fight on the debt ceiling. but we have a budgeting problem in washington where, you know, the senate can essentially just walk away from the game of doing a budget in washington. that's never happened before. and now it's happened three years in a row. so the only way this system can budget is to do it on these crisis points. >> we have a budget problem, michael. and president squarely addressed the middle class this week. did you find it effective? how much time does a second-term president really have to implement a domestic agenda? >> i think about six to eight months because what happens is, even lbj in '65 or fdr in '37, after the enormous landslides, the two biggest congresses in the last 100 years, they knew if they waited longer than six to eight months, members of congress would be thinking about the next re-election. that he would always be a lame duck in the first year of his second term. so i think the president is right to act fast.

reasonable guy. senator, you were on the show in mid-january. we discussed the debt ceiling. you voted against the deal to suspend the debt ceiling with 34 of your fellow senators but it passed anyway. what do you need to see in a bill to avoid the sequester sometime between now and the end of february? >> ali, first of all, as someone who did run a business for 22 years, i'm embarrassed about the way we're operating the country right now and i want to say that up front. sequestration is a bad idea. we ought to be doing our business, appropriating and budgeting, making decisions on cost-benefit analysis. these continual deadlines and cliffs is no way to run a country much less a company. >> when you run a company, you have these things called poison pills. that's what the sequestration was. right? something to awful it would prevent a certain course of action from taking place. why is it that elected officials don't treat that the same way that you would if you were in business? if you had a poison pill in your business to say if you don't do something x will happen or if you do x woul

's a level of brinks manship being played in congress. h.i.v. seen it over the debt ceiling. i've seen it over the fiscal cliff that is just unnecessary. there needs to be a lel of pragmatism back to our politics. i give a lot of credit to the president. he's not just saying let's raise taxes. he said the obvious, we in america cannot continue to spend more than we take in. it's something i don't have the luxury of as mayor doing. what i see the president doing is putting tremendous cuts on the table, trillions of dollars of cuts. you just heard the chief of staff say they're willing to put $4 trillion in cuts but it has to be in a balanced way. the challenge i see right now, if this happens, the sequester happens, the cuts will be blunt, brutal and mind as opposed to being intelligent and insightful. and it will not invest. it will stop us from investing in those critical areas in america we must invest on if we want long-term economic growth. >> schieffer: mr. mayor, let me ask you one thing, frank lautenber, the long-term senator from new jersey said he will not seek reelection. you

and everyone else. >> it certainly is. sequestration, continuing resolution, the soup. >> and debt ceiling increase. which will come probably in early summer or so. >> the sequester was never intended to take effect, it was intended to give the warring tribing around here to agree on the budget. but now some of your party's most ardent conservatives are kind of embracing it as a way to maybe get more leverage on the budget. but, you know, the defense cuts are concentrated in a lot of areas where republicans perform well, in the south, around military bases and the like, the effect on civilian employees is going to be quite dramatic. do you think some of the, if you will, tea party members of your party who are currently embracing the sequester are going to be hearing from their constituents, particularly those in the military areas and will can to regret it? >> there's no doubt there will be a lot of reaction when the sequester hits. it will hit all of us, every congressional district in the country. i keep hoping, though, that the president will come forward with a realistic plan to avert

the board spending cut that is came about as a result of the debt ceiling fight two years ago. they will slowly kick in on march 1st and hit hur military especially hard. the army chief of staff reporting that our sold yirs could see longer time in stanford . top navy officials warning about the raidness of fleet of aircraft carriers and may not be able to deploy to carriers in the same time. steech is live in washington. >> there is troops in stanford, many of them serving multiple tours of duty and have to stay in the combat zone longer than the usual one year if drastic budget cuts go through. here is the army chief of stampt >> for example, we'll curtail training for 80 percent of ground forces. this will impact ourits war fighting skims and introduce short fall necessary critical specialities. including aviation and intelligence and engineering and our ability to ricruit soldiers in to our army. >> training would be a major casult i there is other consequences. less maintenance was expensive war fighting equipment and republicans blame the president for the whole crisis.

in washington. one crisis to another. when you come up against the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff usually we put it off. but i think this is one that is going to cause tremendous damage and the question is with the congress gone for a week when do they have time to negotiate. >> $85 billion out of a $3.5 trillion budget. >> a small percentage but if it affects you. >> and this is going to hurt the economy? >> if you lose your job i think it hurts you don't you think? >> fundamentally the debt that we have at the moment is the bigger problem for the economy and job creation in the private sector. >> chris: let me binge karl in to talk about the sequester and look at the president's state of the union speech and agenda he laid out and what does that tell us about what he wants to do in his second term? >> spend a lot of money and pursue a lot of liberal social policies and says he is out of touch with the reality of where the country is. the democrats said we don't have a spending problem. 83% of the american people say we have a pending problem. i agree with kim. $85 billion cut is a 2.4% cut

into a corner by republican on a completely fraudulent notion of the debt ceiling and his reaction to that. >> i'm following stipulate both parties played -- >> i'm time for us to lean in again and hold these guys up to a higher level of ex-specialation. we have to change incentives in this country for good behavior, not the kind we are seeing. >> republicans have been shocked by the president's inaugural address in his state of the union, to the extent i have not seen before. the one thing, we are looking for bipartisan con seine, is the left and the right agreed this president gave two very left of center liberl speeches. you know, we have all been wondering what washington was going to do with all this extra money they have lying around. the president explained it, he is going to spend it on growing government. his contention in both the speeches was government has not been doing enough t needs to be more. that is not the republican view. that's declaration of war on the republican view. that's not a -- there is no middle ground where republicans and democrats can get together. >> and to that

to happen and then we're going to have a battle over the government shutdown, the debt ceiling. where does this all end? >> it doesn't end. this is democratic politics in an age where we've made promises we can't keep and intractable budget ceilings we have to bump up. let me give you two examples this week. the navy citing the sequester delayed the deployment of the aircraft carrier "truman" undermining our pledge to have two carrier groups in the persian group to keep pressure on iran. citing the sequester. you telling me the navy can't find other ways to economize without this flamboyant and provocative way of trying to pressure congress? second, this week we learned the agriculture department has a diversity awareness program. it doesn't cost much money, in which they teach the bureaucrats in the agriculture department to refer to the pilgrims as illegal aliens and minorities as emerging majorities. it's a small amount of money but a huge symptom of the utter contempt with which washington treats taxpayers' money. two good reasons right there to go ahead with the sequester. >> mr. spea

. obviously there will be some differences of opinion that emerge out of this. whether it be the debt ceiling, the sequester, the continuing resolution of getting the budget, the sequence of things the speech set up in terms of the beginning of this course. having said that, i think it will be pretty contentious. host: the official gop response by senator rubio of florida. marco rubio talked about the president having an obsession with taxes. rand paul spoke about term limits. i am not quite short term limits came from. given the fact we had a significant tax increase will dealing with the 2000, 2003 cuts, i think we are seeing republicans say, why is it all about tax increases? or is the balance in terms of the approach? that will be a central part of the debate as to move forward. guest: there is an answer to that period is an answer the democrats have to explain. what we went to the density negotiation the first time, there was about $1.50 trillion or $2 trillion and that cuts. all cuts and no tax increases. this last time there were tax increases. the balance is basically on a 4- 1 scale

it is going to happen. although it is not like the debt ceiling where immediately you feel the pain the day after. it takes a while for the pain to be felt. there is about three weeks before the money runs out for the government to function. i think in that period of time, they will come up with some better arrangement than the axe across the cleaver. there will be significant spending reduction. this may be the first time people will feel it. >> emily, you are right there in d.c. from all of the folks you are talking with right now, do you hear anything? we have 11 days before it goes into effect. >> i feel like there is a lot of urgency behind contingency planning. i feel like there is much more of an inevitability. there is a sense more so than the fiscal cliff. the cuts come in more gradually and there there is more time. the deadline will pass. the feeling of inevitability. there is a lot of contingency planning going on. >> we will talk about this next weekend as it looms closely with the deadline. let's switch gears and talk with eleanor about the opposition to the nominee john hhage
